British Values are at the core of Dean Trust Ardwick’s school ethos. We believe it promotes a culture of community and prepares pupils for life in modern Britain.
Throughout our country’s history, we have faced change and embraced progress, and never more so than in the 21st Century. The world our children will experience in the future will be even more diverse as our communities and cultures continue to grow and adapt to challenges. Schools and families have the responsibility to prepare pupils for what changes they may face in their futures and equip them with the skills and mindsets they will need to positively contribute to British society in whatever path they choose. This will require resilience, empathy and the character to accept and respect the communities they will be a part of.
As part of the prevent strategy, British Values also ensures the safety of your child. Respect and Tolerance, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Democracy are practised throughout all parts of school life, and not just through our curriculum. In doing so, we hope staff, pupils and families are proud to be a part of modern Britain and proud to belong to Dean Trust Ardwick.
